Week of August 8, 2011

Instead of trying to fix up the shattered premises, start from scratch rams. Walk away from the rubble, with no regrets. Bang not your head against the same wall incessantly. Swagger onward with a fearless breeze. Try not to panic if you don't get the "point" yet. You will ONLY once you are totally outta there.

Aries of the Week: DJ Premier

Opportunity has been knocking for long enough bulls. Answer the call, jumping on to ride the rising wave, reaching out for the hand that extends itself towards you. BTW if taking such chances requires you to move out, on, or over, don't hesitate. Push your way to the front if need be, bulls. Make it happen.

Taurus of the Week: Laetitia Sadier

As one of my favorite lions Robert Plant croons; "When the levee breaks, mama you got to move." Don't stop now, twins. Continue. Shake, skate, skip and scoot. Just don't quit. The cage is rattling. Bust all the way out of those prisons this week. Use the feverish energy of the sun cat to E x p a n d .

Gemini of the Week: Taj Mahal

It's unfortunate that so many people live in fear of Mercury Retrogrades. But a dreamier type like you can understand its true value. This is in fact a moment where all communication is turned inward, illuminating our inner minds with the light and information that is typically spewing outwards at a rate so rapid it can be impossible to decipher. When it travels backwards though, we get a rare chance to capture and make sense of a rich source of truth and energy.

Cancer of the Week: Tanya Donnelly

For the next few weeks, you are in the extra good graces of the cosmos. Take advantage of the limelight lions. Wield your agenda with a greater ease, assert your ideas with a tranquiler mind, pronounce your passion in a more steady procession. Lean back into the arms of the universe that not only loves but believes in you.

Leo of the Week: Ali Shaheed Muhammed

Spend the week in a type of "fast" virgo. Your mind, lips, eyes, and heart are in need of a cleanse. Purge your self from all toxins so then you can see clearly again, past all the build up from before to what lies ahead. To obtain a perfect picture of that, it is necessary to first wipe all the crap from the lens.

Virgo of the Week: Lita Ford

Take a nap, scales. I predict that as you sleep, you will not just regain your energy back, but also rediscover the answers to whats been riddling you. Give in to slumber so as to return to the scene fresher than before, at maximum color and mobility.

Libra of the Week: Tanya Tucker

Rumor has it that you took flight. In this case, I hope the word around town turns out to be true. If I don't see you on those same old tired streets, I'd be way happy. If instead I caught you flaunting your wingspan above our heads, I'd be pleased to know that you were headed to the heights where you more truly belong, inspiring the rest of us to do the same.

Scorpio of the Week: Matthew Shultz

Come inside this week, archers. You've been journeying for a while now. Suspend your nomadic ways for a mini dose of comfort. Curl up and ingest the love of friends, family, children, cats, and dogs. Stay safe for a moment. Park your car for the time being, to attain clarity and come back to solid earth.

Sagittarius of the Week: Dawn Robinson

This week you are back to resuming your position as teacher to the universe, only this time with more guts and grit. You are still able to translate complex concepts in an elegant manner but just with more muscle, spark, and shine. You'll be doing what you've always loved to do, except with enhanced power.

Capricorn of the Week: Syd Barrett

Your community is in need of your pure sighted ness this week, water bearer. So speak your truths loud enough that all will be able to hear. The full moon in your sign on the 13th will provide you with some back up in case you require that. But according to my own crystal ball, you are prepared to launch your potent articulations with a fierce determination.

Aquarius of the Week: Jeru the damaga

It's a balancing act this week, fish. Can you dedicate yourself to the process without picking up anyone else's slack? Stay light on your feet but remain fully grounded to the earth? IS it possible to claim ownership without becoming stuck in the mud? Follow your dreams with certainty yet remain free to explore the universe? You are coordinated enough to do it. Just follow the blazing beat.

Pisces of the Week: Robyn Hitchcock
